Specialties

Dr. William M Culver has the following 1 specialty

  • General Practice

    A general practitioner is similar to a family practitioner in that they treat patients of all ages with a variety of health concerns. These doctors treat everyday ailments, some acute and chronic diseases, and also provid health checkups, physicals, inoculations and preventative care.
    General practitioners differ from family practitioners because they are not required to complete an additional residency in family medicine after completing their medical school residency. Like family practitioners, general practitioners will also provide referrals to patients who are in need of a specialist.

Misdiagnosis by PA and then ignored when I called back to express my extreme suffering.

I saw Jay the PA on Monday who did a split second exam and prescribed suppositories to relieve inflamed hemorrhoids. I called back later in the week to report that I had experienced no relief and that the pain was now so bad that I could not be comfortable in any position; not even standing or lying down. He explained that that shouldn't be and that I should give the medicine a chance to work and call after the holiday weekend. Friday night was horribly painful. Saturday morning my wife took me on a horribly painful ride to urgent care. The doctor told me that my anal abscess was now so advanced that I needed to go to the hospital for emergency surgery and that they would call and tell them what was coming. I told the surgeon that it probably wouldn't have been so bad if I'd seen him Monday. His response was "where have you been?! I gave him the story and that was the end of his interest in continuing that discussion. As a result of this experience I have become a much weaker person. It took a very significant toll on me.

Good doctor; staff lacking

I believe Dr. Culver is competent and trust his medical advice; however, his office staff leaves a lot to be desired (i.e., not following up with specialists, phoning/faxing in prescriptions to the wrong pharmacy, ordering wrong prescription size, folow-up billing errors, etc.). The staff is nice enough, just not exactly competent.
